Here are hospital and hospitality:
INTERPERSONAL : SCIENCES
SOCIOLOGY : POLITICAL
|During the Middle Ages hospitals served different functions to modern institutions, being almshouses for the poor, hostels for pilgrims, or hospital schools. The word hospital comes from the Latin hospes, signifying a stranger or foreigner, hence a guest. Another noun derived from this, hospitium came to signify hospitality, that is the relation between guest and shelterer, hospitality, friendliness, hospitable reception.|
|The word hospitality derives from the Latin hospes, meaning 'host', 'guest', or 'stranger'. Hospes is formed from hostis, which means 'stranger' or 'enemy' (the latter being where terms like 'hostile' derive).|
